The Center for Immigration Studies 2023 Border Tour is currently taking place from the Pacific to Yuma, Arizona. Members of the tour meet with border residents, receive briefings from Border Patrol, local law enforcement, farmers, politicians, and activists, as well as visit immigration related points of interest.
